Pregnancy risk and menstrual cycle question

If I had a potential risk (guy touched my vagina through my underwear with his fingers, and I don’t know if there is precum on his fingers, there was no ejaculation/cum) 2 days before my period came, does it mean that there is zero chance I got pregnant due to that incident? The incident happened on 8 August, my period came on 11 August. Does it mean I had zero chance of being pregnant due to this incident?

I know that sperms can live in the cervix for up to 5 days and I am worried about that. Is it possible that any sperm can wait there while I have my period for the next 3 days and fertilise the egg for the next cycle when my period is finish since my period is only lasts for 3 days? Meaning can it be that I had my period this month, but I may actually be pregnant next month due to that incident? My cycle is usually 39 to 43 days long.

Hello, Anon! Thank you for posting today.

For all intents and purposes, there is a risk of pregnancy when a woman has unprotected sexual intercourse with ejaculation that enters the vagina. The highest chance for this is during ovulation. Touching you with underwear on will not cause pregnancy. Pre-ejaculate fluid does not contain sperm unless a man has not urinated since his last ejaculation. One he urinates any sperm is flushed out. Even if there was anything on his fingers, sperm is not designed to pass through clothing.
